OptiPlex 9020M HDMI Audio as well as general Audio output questions.

I have 3 OptiPlex 9020M systems and have a tech question about audio output. All the systems have the HDMI output option installed. OS is Windows 8.1. I have a few questions on audio output:

1) Is this system capable of outputting audio embedded over the HDMI connection?

2) The data sheets state that the Microphone jack is re-assignable to Headphone function, although there seems to be no option in the driver to do that.

3) The audio driver "suggests" the output for speakers is the front 3.5mm L/R jack, although it seems to only function as headphones and not as a line out.

It seems pretty short sighted to produce a micro desktop with several stand and mounting options that would place such a box in less than optimal spaces for internal speaker audio output and not provide some non-hacky way to provide an alternate sound output to any sort of external speaker.

RE: OptiPlex 9020M HDMI Audio as well as general Audio output questions.

Installing chipset updates, Realtek audio driver, then re-installing Intel display drivers will add "display audio" as an option in display properties.
